OUR OCEAN NEEDS PROTECTION

SUPPORTING BLUE MARINE FOUNDATION
WE ARE ALL SISTERS IN THE SEA

OUR OCEAN IS UNDER THREAT

The ocean, vast and beautiful, is the lifeblood of our planet.

But the ocean is under threat.

Climate change, acidification and all kinds of pollution are threatening the health of the ocean.

WE ARE ALL SISTERS IN THE SEA

OVERFISHING IS STRIPPING OCEAN LIFE

But most damaging of all, industrial scale overfishing is stripping the ocean of life.

Disturbing the seabed by dragging heavy nets and trawls across it releases carbon, exacerbating climate change and acidification of the ocean.

WE ARE ALL SISTERS IN THE SEA

WORLD’S LARGEST CARBON STOREHOUSE

The complex web of marine life enables the ocean to absorb around a third of the world’s carbon dioxide and produce over half the earth’s oxygen.

Coastal habitats such as seagrass, mangroves and saltmarsh suck up and store carbon for millennia, with some seagrasses capturing carbon 35 times faster than rainforest.

IT NEEDS PROTECTION

The ocean covers 70 % of the world’s surface, but currently only 2.7 % of its highly protected. 

Creating a global network of Marine protected areas would safeguard ocean health and biodiversity, and combat climate change.

PARTNERING WITH BLUE MARINE

Blue Marine Foundation is a charity dedicated to restoring the ocean to health by securing marine protected areas, restoring marine habitats, tackling unsustainable fishing and connecting people with the ocean. 

Blue Marine’s mission is to see at least 30 per cent of the world’s ocean under effective protection by 2030 and the other 70 per cent managed in a responsible way.
